Update: Cincinnati Bengals head coach Zac Taylor told media members Friday during post-practice availability that Joe Burrow would miss "several weeks" with a calf strain, but declined to give any more specifics on a return timeline. Burrow remains the favorite to win the NFL MVP at BetMGM (+600) despite the injury.
Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow was carted off the field after a calf injury during the team's second practice of training camp on Thursday.
In a video that surfaced online, Burrow appeared to limp onto the training cart while favoring his left leg before being carried off the field. Many of his teammates gathered around to check on the star quarterback. The Bengals had been running 11-on-11 drills when the contactless injury occurred.

Burrow had been one of the favorites to win MVP at BetMGM at +600 odds. He was also one of the favorites to have the most passing yards in the NFL at +900 odds. Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase was also one of the favorites to lead the league in receiving yards and touchdowns. All of those marketplaces are now off the board.
The Bengals were +1100 to win the Super Bowl. While that market has remained upright at most major American sportsbooks, odds on the Bengals' win totals have universally been removed.
The severity of the injury is unknown. Bengals coach Zac Taylor confirmed the calf injury in a press conference on Thursday afternoon.
Burrow finished fifth in the NFL in passing yards last season with 4,475 yards while also throwing 35 touchdowns, a mark that was tied for second in the NFL.
